And with these, my PRID collection is complete :)

I do still need a FE T'con Cliffy and there are a number of Arms Micron releases I have been eyeballing (I'm looking at YOU Hellflame Microns!).

Beast Hunters has failed to pull me in yet, with the possible exception of Smokescreen. These purchases could also be the last "mainline" TF's I buy for a significant while!

Nice! I have just picked up Thundertron and Ultra Magnus Voyagers from Argos this afternoon and they do look very nice!

I am on a mission to watch the rest of Season 2 of TF Prime this weekend, so just seen the first appearance of Dreadwing, Skyquakes 'brother'!
Now I see why one is a repaint of the other! I also now understand why we have the repaint of Breakdown after being carved up by Airachnid, then being salvaged by MECH (but I havent watched the following episodes yet so :-$ ).

I have passed on the Voyager of Starscream as I would like to try and keep some sort of scale thing going with TF Prime so my Deluxe Entertainment Edition will be my TF Prime Starscream unless I get a screen deco Deluxe SS on my travels?

Has there been a Deluxe Starscream released apart from that Entertainment Edition pack (with Bumblebee) or was the 'First Edition' SS actually Deluxe sized? :-?

FE Starscream is a Deluxe figure, and the Entertainment Pack version is a redeco of the original one, with colours more similar to Skywarp.

I love FE Starscream, you should look into getting one!

Yep, thought about using Ent Ed Starscream as my TF Prime Skywarp, with his grey/purple deco; Ive never painted a Transformer yet (guess I should practice on some knock offs!) but a little black here and there might add to the Skywarp effect? ;)

Just opened a tab for Ebay and I could secure a FE Starscream for £25 delivered from the States. Havent checked local stores like Kapow or Amaz\on to see what they have yet? :-?

Nice one, here in Dutchieland Nemesis Prime is out of stock. And regarding Pure Energon O.P., how different is he from Shining O.P.? Care to take a comparison shot?

Not the greatest comparison shot by any means, I'll try to take some closer ones 2moro, Shining on the right, Pure on the left. Basically Pure has been cast in the same colour plastic as the crystal.

In hand, I thought I had been sent another Shining, but the difference is quite obvious side by side.

Now if I could just summon up the courage to assemble them...!

Yeah, you really need to compare them side by side to tell them apart. Thanks :PEACE:

AM29 Shockwave arrived today, and I'm loving him. I have to say, of all the arms microns I've got Bido is bar far the best.

The only downside to this figure is the impending arrival of the BH voyager.

PS: I've order Lazerback today also.

Taking into account the exchange rate and locations of sellers, about the same. Each Pure and Shining has cost me around £20-£25, although the prices dropped on the Shining ones not long after I had jumped on them. The one exception to that is Gra B, although he's still quite new.

That's good to hear. I was afraid that the Pure Energon ones would be more coveted, since a new combo was advertised with them: Pure Energon Super Star Saber, which which just the Matrix Saber, with Pure Energon O.P. and B.2 attached. :P

Oddly, the Hellflames are still the ones holding the value on the secondary market. Even with the re-release of Gul. The cheapest i've seen them is at around £35, but even then only 2 at a time (Noji seems to turn up a lot) and only twice a set of four....The seller of one set wanting £220 :shock:
